FEU needed to win its Sunday’s game against University of the East and the 22-year-old Tolentino heeded the call when the Tamaraws needed a closer.With a 49-49 score board at the end of the third quarter, Tolentino completed a four-point play that completed the Tamaraws’ 21-8 run in the fourth that gave FEU a comfortable 70-57 lead with 3:27 left in the game.FEU held on to win 79-63 to get to 6-6, and the fourth spot, with Tolentino finishing with 10 points, seven in the fourth, and seven boards.Forward: Thirdy Ravena (Ateneo Blue Eagles)Thirdy Ravena.

Turkish star Turan could face more than 12 years jail for brawl

first_imgSahin, who goes on stage by his first name Berkay, was also charged, with prosecutors demanding up to two years in jail.Turan, 31, had last week been summoned to an Istanbul police station to give a statement about the incident but was allowed to walk free.The incident, which took place outside an Istanbul nightclub and reportedly left Sahin with a broken nose, has transfixed Turkey over the last days.In a bizarre sequence of events, Turan then reportedly went to the hospital where the singer was being treated clutching a gun and begging to be shot and forgiven.The attacking midfielder, who won 100 caps for the national side, has for years been Turkey’s best known footballer and is a strong supporter of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.He backed Erdogan strongly after the failed July 2016 coup, appearing at rallies outside his home, and the Turkish president even came as a witness to Turan’s marriage.Turan is notorious for poor behaviour both on and off the field.He was banned for a record 16 games by the Turkish football authorities in May after he shoved and verbally abused a referee in a game for Basaksehir.Turan joined Basaksehir last season on loan from Barcelona, where he had largely endured an unhappy spell on the bench after joining from Atletico Madrid.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arda Turan was the centre of attention when he returned to Turkey in January to play for Basaksehir © AFP/File / OZAN KOSEISTANBUL, Turkey, Oct 15 – Turkish prosecutors on Monday charged Barcelona player Arda Turan over a brawl with a prominent singer, asking for the footballer to be sentenced to twelve-and-a-half years in jail.The prosecutors charged Turan, who is currently on loan to Istanbul’s Basaksehir, with sexual harassment, unlicensed possession of weapons and causing intentional injury over the fight with singer Berkay Sahin, the state-run Anadolu news agency said.last_img read more

Zaha praises Pardew’s impact at Crystal Palace

first_img Wilfried Zaha in action for Crystal Palace 1 Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha believes Alan Pardew’s appointment as the new Eagles manager has “brought a high” back to Selhurst Park.The former Newcastle boss enjoyed a winning start with his new club, with the on-loan Manchester United man instrumental in setting up Jason Puncheon’s match-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Tottenham.And the 22-year-old revealed he was “buzzing” with his performance under the new boss, adding Palace must now approach their relegation battle without fear.“I think the gaffer has brought a high around the team again,” said Zaha.“I’d heard a couple of good things about him before he came in and he’s brought something different which will help us move forwards.“He told us he wants to add a threat going forward and gave us set positions and tasks to do, like catch them on the break, and that’s what happened.“Even though I wasn’t starting I couldn’t let my head go down, I just knew that if I came on I had to make an impression for the gaffer and I did that so I’m buzzing.“He told me to go on and take on players so I never had any fear coming onto the pitch, I just knew I had to do one piece of magic and give us a chance and I’m glad I did that.“I came on when the game was open which gave me a chance to get at them and try and get a goal or two. I was unlucky in that respect today but hopefully on another day I will.”He added: “We just have to play with no fear because we’re around the bottom half of the table and we’ve got nothing to lose so we had to go at them.“Beating a team like Tottenham makes it even better. There’s always pressure in the Premier League but you have to deliver and we did that today.”last_img read more

first_imgTHREE insurance companies which illegally obtained information from a mole inside Letterkenny’s Department of Social Welfare were named and shamed yesterday.The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (deputy director Gary Davis is pictured) took the unprecedented case against FBD Insurance, Zurich Insurance and Travelers Insurance broke the story a year ago ( The ongoing investigation into the alleged unlawful leaking of information is being conducted by gardai in Letterkenny.There have been no arrests.Yesterday’s case was heard at Dublin District Court where assistant data protection commissioner Tony Delaney described the breaches as “very, very serious”.He said the case centred on 15 unnamed individuals whose information was obtained but this was just a sample of numerous data breaches uncovered by the OPDC.Following a tip-off from the department, the office of Reliance Investigation Services was searched in December 2010 and files, including their “active client list”, were examined.The three insurance companies were identified as clients from VAT numbers on invoices for services provided by the detective agency.Each of the insurance companies yesterday offered to make a €20,000 donation to charity in a show of remorse and agreed to pay the legal costs of the data commissioners.Judge Ann Ryan accepted the offer and directed that the companies donate the money to the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin.When we broke the story Mr Davis told us that TWO private investigators and a number of financial institutions were being examined as part of their investigation.“This is the biggest investigation we have undertaken. We can confirm it involves one individual passing on information to a private investigator whom we believe passed on this information to a number of third parties.“The investigation is still ongoing so we are limited to what we can say at the moment. I can confirm that two private investigators and a number of financial institutions have been visited as part of our investigation process,” he said at the time.NAMED: THE INSURANCE COMPANIES WHO ILLEGALLY BOUGHT INFORMATION FROM DONEGAL DSW WORKER was last modified: February 14th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Household, consumer spending grows

first_img19 March 2012 Boosted by increases in consumption by households and the government, South Africa’s real gross domestic expenditure rose to 5.1% in the fourth quarter of 2011, the Reserve Bank reports. This was up from a revised 4.8% in the previous three months. “This rate of growth, the highest since the third quarter of 2010, primarily resulted from increases in real final consumption expenditure by the household sector and general government, alongside sustained firm growth in real gross fixed capital formation,” the Bank said in its latest quarterly bulletin on Monday. Consumer spending expanded at a robust rate in the fourth quarter, to 4.6%, after increasing by 3.8% in the third quarter.More disposable income According to the central bank, the faster pace of spending was consistent with added increases in disposable income of households. “This faster pace of spending was consistent with a further increase in disposable income of households and positive wealth effects,” the Bank said. Growth in real disposable income of households accelerated from an annualised rate of 3.9% in the third quarter of 2011 to 4.7% in the fourth quarter, reflecting improved employment levels during this period. “The sustained growth in real spending by households was evident across all expenditure categories, with spending on services in particular regaining momentum.” For 2011, real expenditure by households advanced by 5%.

South Africa to pilot smart ID cards

first_img8 May 2012 South Africans will move one step closer to having smart card IDs when the Department of Home Affairs launches the pilot of its smart ID project, which promises to speed up government services while cutting down on crime and corruption involving identity documents. Briefing journalists in Pretoria last week, Home Affairs Director-General Mkuseli Apleni said the pilot – to be launched within the next six months – would involve the issue of 2 000 smart IDs to allow for the testing of the smart cards’ systems, hardware and software. “It will also enable the government to procure the required machinery to produce the volume of cards that will be required, so that we eventually completely phase out the current green bar-coded ID.”Old IDs to be phased out over four years Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said last month that the roll-out of the smart IDs – their issue to new ID applicants – would begin in 2013. Apleni said that, once all the systems were tested and in place to produce the smart cards, all new ID applications would be treated as applications for smart IDs – at which point the minister would promulgate the costs of the smart IDs for citizens. These are expected to be similar to the current costs for documents. It was possible that the green bar-coded ID could eventually be phased out over about four years, Apleni said.One card fits all? Apleni said the government was looking at having South Africans use just one card for all their official documentation requirements – identities, licences, National Health Insurance, social grants. He said the departments of transport, health and social development were wanting to be involved in the project, adding that Home Affairs would look into how it could upscale the chip on the cards in order to accommodate these departments.
